Tēnā tātou katoa. Ānei rā te mihi ki te rangi me te whenua
Ki ngā mate kua wheturangitia haere atu rā
Ki a tātou ngā waihotanga o rātou mā
Tēna koutou tēna tātou katoa
Ko Maungakiekie te maunga
Ko Waitematā te moana
Ko Takaparawhau te whenua
Ko Ngāti Whātua te iwi
Ko Arekatera Maihi toku ingoa
Mauri ora ki a tātou
I am of Ngāti Whātua o Orakei, Ngāti Whātua ki Kaipara, Tainui, Te Waiohua, and Ngā Puhi descent. I am an accomplished artist, musician, carver and Tā moko artist.
I graduated from the NZ Māori Arts and Crafts Institute in 2006 where I now am Head of Schools. I established Toitu Design Ltd in 2007
Since its inception, Toitu Design has been a leader in its field and we have built a reputation around expertise, authenticity and workmanship to the highest standard. Our strength is fusing traditional Māori art forms with contemporary design.
